Try Dulse For A Healthy Pulse!

Happy Monday Bloggers!

We have been working hard to keep up with the unusual high demand for our edible seaweed's during this economic depression. A typical day at http://www.floridaherbhouse.com/ and http://www.sharpweblabs.com/ involves about twice the packaging of our edible seaweed orders than that of one year ago and for that we thank you the consumer!

This month has been the "Month Of The Dulse"! One of the more popular edible seaweed products we sell is dulse flakes and dulse powder. This is truly an amazing seaweed with a wealth of "B" vitamins and healthy minerals. More specifically dulse seaweed contains calcium potassium, magnesium, iron, iodine, manganese, copper, chromium, zinc, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C and E.

Dulse seaweed comes from a sea vegetable that has a fine distinct taste of seaweed. Stephen C. Sharp the founder of Florida Herb House enjoys the flavor of this great seaweed especially when sprinkled on a fresh salad. Dulse powder is worth trying for the nutrients alone. You may find that you either love it or dislike it. If you dislike it, don't waste the powder, add it to your garden or plants. Rhodymenia palmata which is a red seaweed found along both coasts of the North Atlantic; a salty confection made from this red algae is also called dulse. Shaped like the palm of a hand, it has the texture of thin rubber and is approx. 5-15 inches in length. Growing on rocks, mollusks, or larger seaweeds, dulse attaches by means of disks or rhizomes. It is commonly dried and eaten raw by North Atlantic fishermen.
